When I first entered the resort, I was simply shocked by the beauty of it. The entrance hall is all in glass, facing the beautiful ocean. When I got to the room, again I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. It was like a condo, with kitchen, queen size bed, and a huge balcony facing the ocean. I felt like I was in a movie. The resort crew assigned each guest to a personal travel guide, that gives you advices on anything you want to know, or do in that island. Assignment day is a fun meeting, it is worth it to go!
The restaurant is also one of the hotel must see. The food is delicious from breakfast to dinner. With a variety of Greek salads, cucumber sauce, and my favorite.... gyros! Once a week the restaurant has this Greek night, and it was very entertaining. All the traditional dancers, the food, desserts, drinks. One more thing I loved about the hotel, is the activities team they offer to the guests that don't want to leave the place. They put games together, and give out prizes. I have to say that was a great time! I met so many people, and I still keep in touch with a lot of them.

Sun Beach Holiday Club is located in Lalyssos, a short ride from the airport and about 5 miles from Rhodes town. Finding the resort using the RCI directions was quite challenging. We had to stop and ask to finally find it. From outward appearances, we were impressed. The building was recently painted and it is located on a nice beach. The lobby, pools and restaurants looked inviting.
We expected the unit to be spartan but were really disappointed in the condition of our 1-bedroom unit. There were small holes in the tile in the bath, rust and mold on air conditioning and dead bugs on the popcorn painting on the ceilings and walls. The kitchen had no oven or dishwasher and a very small minifridge. The minifridge had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. Our apartment, # 216 ,was directly underneath the landing pattern of numerous flights. Although there was daily maid service, the unit never really felt clean and there was a strong odor of bug spray. One evening, I walked into the kitchen to see a really large cockroach scurry behind the fridge. There are no screens and plenty of mosquitoes so you really have to keep windows and doors shut. We did have a lovely, large balcony. We left the window open and fought the great mosquito battle from 2 to 4 in the morning one night. The air conditioning was so dirty, we were afraid to use it. This is a Club Greece property.
The following week we stayed at Grand Leoniki in Crete, also a Club Greece property. That resort had none of these issues. This resort has so much potential. It is a shame that some refurbishment, extermination and sprucing up of the units is not done. It could easily be a Gold Crown. Staff are friendly and helpful. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the resort. Our favorite was Kostas on Ferenikis St. (Walk out the door of the lobby and take a left.) The owners were extremely friendly and the food excellent and very reasonably priced. Children are treated to various little gifts and adults are given complimentary Ouzo at the end of the meal. We were there the last week in October and most restaurants were getting ready to close for the season.
The weather was amazing, sunny and in the mid to high 70's. Many people were swimming in the pools and the ocean. Lots of people were windsurfing. We were there to sightsee, so did not use the beach or pools. We rented a car from Budget for about €137 for the week. We loved walking the streets of medieval Old Town Rhodes. It is a feast for the eyes... a labyrinth of narrow streets, shops and restaurants. It is the largest inhabited medieval city in the world. Lindos was an easy drive and the view of the Acropolis and the lovely white village of Lindos, on approach, spectacular.

The unit was clean, and the appliances all worked. I liked the partial view of the beach from our porch. There was only 1 TV, and that was in the living room where our niece slept. The master bedroom didn't have any (a minor consideration). Towels were replaced every day, which was nice.
Our unit was close to the pool area, sauna, and jacuzzi. We didn't swim in the beach nor the pool, since the water was cold. We used the sauna and jacuzzi instead.

The one-bedroom unit does comfortably sleep a family. The sofas (for want of a better word) convert into individual twin beds.

Not very much to do that time of year, but touring the island is great when there's not many people around. We had a nice unit which had one bedroom, bathroom including shower over the bath, kitchen with microwave, and living/dining area with terrace overlooking the swimming pool and the sea. The TV had satellite channels so were able to check in with the BBC!
